Bamboo Fiber Sleeping Pillow
Our bamboo fiber pillows are firm and heavy. I love this pillow because it provides plenty of support for my neck and allows me to wake up feeling aligned and energized.
"When you seek advice from your chiropractor about the health of your spine, one of the last things you may expect them to weigh in on is your pillow choice. Pillows actually play a big role in the health of your spine, and using the wrong type of pillow can lead to problems back problems. Here’s what you need to know in order to pick a pillow that will support your spine in all the right places!
Why Pillows are Important
Your pillow is meant to help support your upper body as you sleep and keep your spine in a neutral alignment. It has to fit your size and your curves, and it also needs to be the right kind of pillow for the sleeping position you prefer.
Pillows and Sleeping Positions
You may have never looked, but many pillows are labeled to let you know which sleeping position they are best for. If you’re a back sleeper, you need to look for a pillow that supports your neck, head, and shoulders well, and preferably has a low profile to keep your spine aligned. Also, get a pillow to put under your knees to keep pressure off your lower back.
If you’re a side sleeper, you need a pillow that will support your head and neck while keeping your body aligned. You will need a thicker pillow than a back sleeper. You also should get a pillow to put between your knees in order to keep your spine in a neutral position, and this pillow should be on the firmer side.
If you’re a stomach sleeper, you should talk to your chiropractor about how you can stop doing it and adopt another sleep position because it’s the worst position for your spine and neck. If you do sleep like this, you need a flat pillow or no pillow at all, and if you can place a flat pillow under your stomach that may also help. " Sara Butler of The Joint Health Chiropractors.
